2010 Morey, Thomas Santenay Vieilles Vignes Pinot Noir
Pinot Noir: 750ml
about this wine:
This plot enjoys an excellent exposure, lying as it does immediately
below the famous "Clos de Tavannes", jewel in the crown of Santenay's
Our Santenay Vieilles Vignes comes from vines in the named plot "Prorons dessus", some of which were planted in the late fifties. The Santenay village appellation comprises 180 ha of vines spread among various slopes surrounding the village at altitudes ranging from 220 to 400 metres. The soils, derived from Middle Jurassic rocks, vary naturally from one terroir to another. These stony brown limestone soils, resemble those of the Côte de Nuits which begin to reappear south of Chassagne-Montrachet and are the norm at Santenay.
The soil on this gently-sloping site is brown limestone, very light, rather shallow and highly favourable to vine-growing.
This enjoyable cuvée has less complexity than a 1er cru, a rather dense ruby hue, and aromas of strawberries and cherries which recur in the mouth and are set off by perceptible but discreet tannins which testify to regular and complete ripening.
A quaffable wine which can be enjoyed from its third year but can still surprise after several more years' keeping.
Thomas Morey belongs to the tenth generation of this Chassagne family. He grew up familiar with his grandparents' holding and then worked for 12 years on that of his parents. Then, in 2006, he decided to set up his own domaine together with his wife Sylvie. Thus the Thomas Morey domaine put its name to its first vintage in 2007.
